Somers Hall was originally built as an addition to our church in 1923 for the purpose of holding basketball games, fairs, and other community events. Renovated in 1955, the hall is still a vital part of the village.
Today Somers Hall is the home of the Canisteo Valley Youth Center which is sponsored by our church. Anywhere from 20-40 young people meet here after school each night. A safe supervised environment is provided for them. The gymnasium lends itself to a number of active games with basketball being the most popular. Several of the center's programs are educational with the main focus on character building and making good choices. Special events include dances, holiday parties, and field trips to out-of-town-activities. the center is fortunate to have both outstanding programming and leadership!
Youth Center Hours are school days 3-5:30 p.m. The Youth Center is administered by Hornell Area Concern For Youth, under the direction of Paul Shepard.
The Parenting group ' Canisteo Parent Time Out' meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm. This is a group for parents and children who are at risk.
